Door makers and stockists are, under the impact of the new purism, now in search of identity-giving and “embellishing” features to upgrade their products and render them unmistakeable. Equally, end-users desire special solutions that satisfy to the full their aspirations to individuality. The concave front on FSB 1259 can be experienced visually and functionally in equal measure. Our eyes find pleasure in the play of light and shadow created. This decorative effect is augmented by graspable haptic merits: the continuous front groove provides ergonomic guidance for the thumb – a form of styling wholly in keeping with the Four-Point Guide to Good Grip postulated by FSB – and is excitingly accentuated by a formally novel rendering of the “thumbrest”.
